hashany of a 4-byte value degenerates to pretty much just a call to mix().
Perhaps we should just expose a hash12() that takes three integers and calls
mix() on them like hash_any does.

The reason I'm thinking that is that we'll want to do the same thing for
bigint, float4, float8, etc.

And that fix you committed a while back to improve the catcache hash function
made a huge difference. Now I'm wondering if it shouldn't just be invoking
hash_any() or mix() too.
